"B"-ing Busy at Home

I like it clean, but I don't like to clean. No, that's not right, either. I like to clean, but I don't like the constant picking up, decluttering ,straightening, that's part of life in this fallen world.

However, I am one who likes to come up with mnemonic devices (memory tools) and new systems ( in hope that one will actually work). So, I thought maybe I could start a new cleaning/tidying/decorating routine now that school's in session, to help me do what needs to be done regularly with the incentive of putting decorating into the mix. Maybe if I'm successful, my family room will get a facelift this fall.

Here's what I came up with.

Blessing (Monday) 70 minutes of quick tidy/mild clean everywhere (see
Bettering (Tuesday) a little more to keep it from slipping!
Busting (Wednesday)....deep cleaning
Bugging (Thursday)...clean/organize"where it bugs me" (e.g., under a sink, a file drawer, etc)
Beautifying (Friday)...put decorative touches on (or start a home dec project)
Buying (Saturday)...go out for household essentials
Basking (Sunday)...enjoy fruit of our labors by resting

Did I miss anything? Is this the dorkiest thing you've read all day?
